.s. ambassador i had intimate knowledge of some of the things that the national security agency was doing, so let's at least understand several things. the nsa will vacuum up anything and everything they can get their hands on because no one, no one other than the president and his top national security adviser, can tell them not to do something, so that's point one. point two, the damage that has been done to american economic interests as a result of this revelation is as important as the foreign policy consequences, because what european company will want to use american networking capacity and other types of computer technologies as a result of this. finally, one other thing. i'm really embarrassed for this white house. i feel awfully sorry for the president because this is basically going to undermine the -- our transatlantic alliance for many years to come, just at a time when we're negotiating an iran agreement. where our european allies are so important to us. >> meanwhile there are some republican leaders coming out, republican congressman peter king defending the u.s. spying on world le
